Pet Airways: New Airline To Fly Only Pets, No Humans Allowed

By jim Published: March 26, 2009

It's not April 1st yet and it's not from "The Onion," so for your consideration:

Pet Airways, a new startup launching next month that flies pets and only pets: “With Pet Airways your pet will be safe and comfortable, flying in the main cabin, not in cargo. From check-in at our Pet Lounge, and throughout the flight, our Pet Attendants will be caring and catering to all your pet’s needs. You can even monitor how your pet is doing.” Fees start at $150. Sadly, only your pet can fly, not you (they won’t even put you in the cargo area of the plane).

Maybe this isn't as crazy at it sounds. If I had to fly my pet across country I would gladly pay the money for peace of mind to make sure they are safe and not exposed to the dangers of a cargo hold. The closest airports to Ohio where Pet Airways is due to operate are Washington, D.C./Baltimore and Chicago.
